They all live in the village of Zenguela, Ségou Region (the fourth administrative district ofMali) and know each as relatives by blood or marriage or as neighbors. They sell traditional “pagnes” wax fabric, artisanal products and milk. With the goal of expanding their working capital, the group members have joined Soro Yiriwaso and are now on their second solidarity loan. Mrs. Djelika (the one seated in the middle on the photo) is a well-known vendor of artisanal products in the village of Zenguela and nearby region. She plans to use her loan to buy artisanal products (terracotta water troughs for poultry, small vessels, pots and colanders). She buys these products from the village blacksmiths. She resells for cash and on credit to a customer base composed mainly of women. With this loan, Mrs. Djelika hopes to achieve an average monthly income of 21,000 FCFA, which will be used to reinvest in her activity and help provide for her children’s needs.

Les cinq membres du groupe Ankadignongné sont mariés majoritairement dans des familles monogamiques. Elles ont en moyenne 38 ans et 4 enfants. Elles vivent toutes dans le village Zenguela dans la région de Ségou (4ème région administrative du Mali) et se sont connues à travers des liens de mariage, de voisinage et de parenté. Elles font le petit commerce de pagnes wax, des produits artisanaux et du lait. Dans le but d’augmenter leurs fonds de commerce, les membres du groupe ont intégré Soro Yiriwaso et sont à leur 2ème cycle de prêt solidaire.
Madame, Djelika (femme assise au milieu de la photo) est une grande vendeuse de produits artisanaux dans le village de Zenguela et ses environnants. Elle compte utiliser son prêt pour acheter des produits artisanaux (des abreuvoirs en terre cuite pour la volaille, des canaris, gargoulettes et des passoires). Elle se ravitaille en ces produits avec les femmes forgerons du village. La revente se fait au comptant et à crédit à une clientèle composée majoritairement femmes. Avec ce prêt, Madame Djelika espère réaliser un bénéfice mensuel moyen de 21 000 FCFA qui sera utilisé pour être réinvesti dans l’activité et assurer l’entretien des enfants.

This is a Group Loan

In a group loan, each member of the group receives an individual loan but is part of a larger group of individuals. The group is there to provide support to the members and to provide a system of peer pressure, but groups may or may not be formally bound by a group guarantee. In cases where there is a group guarantee, members of the group are responsible for paying back the loans of their fellow group members in the case of delinquency or default.

Kiva's Field Partners typically feature one borrower from a group. The loan description, sector, and other attributes for a group loan profile are determined by the featured borrower's loan. The other members of the group are not required to use their loans for the same purpose.
